Recorded live at 1st Avenue in Minneapolis in late 1984 (I think). Originally released as a cassette only and available at Northern Lights and maybe a few other local music stores.

The recording starts out very muddy during the opening of Bliss but brightens about halfway through the song and remains pretty good for the duration.

There are a total of 12 tracks.

All in all, a pretty good example of the UGs live.

Subject: Greatness on Cassette
Urban Guerrillas were a great addition to the 1980's dance-rock, proto-punk, whatever-you-want-to-call-it scene in Minneapolis, and their live shows live on in infamy. Thankfully, somebody had the foresight to record a rousing set of theirs - and somebody else had even more foresight to save it for all these years.
Sounding faster but tight when compared to their LPs (also available on, this set of songs perfectly lays out what filled Urban Guerrillas dance floors - an out-of-control version of "Land of 10,000 Dances" gets well over the 10 minute mark, seamlessly including elements from "Rock & Roll N*gger," among other songs. A more developed "Chinese Voodoo," which appeared on an earlier cassette release, is here in all its hypnotic glory.
Urban Guerrillas fan? This release is for you. Curious about what you're reading? Stream a few tracks and get caught up in the Shimmy Shimmy Ko Ko Bop.
